November 12, 2013 -- This week on "Federal Tech Talk",, host John Gilroy interviews Contraqer CEO Dwight Gibbs, and company president Scott Keough.

Federal contracting is like the weather: everyone complains, but nobody does anything about it.

Contraqer has a better solution.

Everyone knows that the federal government is asked to do more with less. This leads to several problems.

How can one person keep track on one purchase order if five items are ordered at one maintenance level, fifteen at another, and they are all being delivered to three different locations?

If you add in issues like vendors billing for preventative maintenance that is not contracted, one can see the confusing situation.

The cloud-based solution offered by Contraqer takes into account the rapid changes in technology and the alterations in purchasing methods that are taking place.

During the interview, Gibbs talks about the financial side of the transaction while Keough discusses how frustrating it is for federal acquisition professionals to get a handle on everything from Quality Assurance Surveillance Programs to service level agreements.
